We've been showing the location of projects on Edushi.com (many more cities are available) for a long time...

While playing Project Gotham 4 on the Xbox360, I noticed that all the buildings in Shanghai are extremely detailed! I will look for SWFC tonight. I have a German friend in Shanghai right now, and can't wait to see his pictures. I was supposed to go, but my business changed suppliers for the next project, AND $15,000 was a little steep for a plane ticket.

I don't think you will be able to see the tower... maybe the Jin Mao Tower?

No, I don't have any pictures of it, although I can tell you how it looks. Tiny lights in every panel of the upper part of the facade around the hole are blinking, the observation deck "bridges" are lit up, and there's a blue stripe of light along the top of the tower (as we've seen before in some pictures). The rest of the building wasn't lit up at all, I'm don't know if it is supposed to be like that.

This photo illustrates the new lighting scheme quite well.




It is taken at such long shutter speed that all of the small lights are shown at the same time - in reality they are blinking at a very high speed.

Bro, it was posted by another forumer like 2 posts above mine.
I guess it comes from ss.cn or something.

We should figure out where it is taken from though, that's an awesome view.

Yeah, didn't notice it the first time...but, oh well, I've become accustomed to making myself feel like an ass for quite some time! What else is new?

Well, it isn't completed, so you'll have to wait a couple of more weeks.
